Any beach with kelp close to the surf line.
You then have to go on a negative low tide, like negative 1 foot or more.

The spot I hit up that day was Swamis.

Good Luck
Right on. Very cool!

Your sooo right brother. Those minus tides are a key for many secret spots I've found. But newbies don't know how fast that tide turns..... and its easy to get caught... With your guard down.. If you fish there..... stay alert. The tide returns quickly. Brother.....how about "poke poling" for shallow lings? ... deadly.

You’re spot on, when the tide is coming in,
You need to know when it’s time to go,
Because the mussels on there will
Cut the crap out of you.

I think it is now.....haven't looked. But back in "the Day".....mlpa what? We hadn't dealt with that "headache" yet. Now days you need a GPS and location info before the haul your but off to jail.

Jerdog.....minus Low tide ....that's also when we got the humongous mussels..... 5" for sure!! A "dozen" lasted ALL morning!!

Yeah.... that "rock tango" ....is better in tennis shoes..... but cut up if you fell. I've broke more than one rod... falling while fishing in "precarious" places..... or on extended shoreline / jetty treks.

But great desire ..... and "visions of grandeur" make us fishermen do strange things. ....lol. Thanks for the memories ... brother!

one time I was down there with my Brother , and he invited 2 friends,
and we Caught A bunch of Opal Eye Sheep head and bass,
when we got back to Shore ,
I set up on A big Rock to
Filet all the Fish ,so we could split it up,
and about half way done the Sea Gulls were thick,
and didn't thing nothing about it, till A Helicopter ,
circled over our head A couple of times,
then A Sheriff showed up in his Jeep on the Beach,
and asked us where the gun was,
and we said what the hell,
so he had us open up our back packs and check things out,
A little ways from the Rock , then when he was all Done ,those Sea Gulls
where Eating most of the Fish that I had Filet already,
we were so Pissed , he said he was sorry , but the Eye in the Sky thought
that they seen A gun,, but it had to be my knife Flashing in the sun .

Jerdog.....what did they think.....lol.... you were shooting the heads off?? Robbing others of their fish? (brother and buddies). Yeah never had sheriff's problems..... but the DFG. ... well you already know they hate me down there because of getting those 157 ticket cases tossed by a real judge.

Anyways.... dawn sea gulls probably left you a note.....said they like it when you make them dinner....lol. Rat bastards!! Be safe my brother. We'll hook up one day for some real laughs.Thanks.

I just did. $200 for a $130 trip in a San Francisco Bay boat for striper and halibut yesterday. Tipped big too.

Felt pretty damn good to go fishing again. :jig: :jig: :jig:
Dennis.....what boat did you go on? Been a few years since I went..... but there are some great boats.... and a few "questionable" operations for sure. Knew many of those skippers while working at Hi's for years.

Stripes biting by the gate......rock pile?..... brothers?....Red rock? ......Angel Island? Just curious....inside or outside the Gate? Halibut have been onnthe chew in South City for sure.....anyways, Thanks.

It's all speculation till they start up....besides price increase there will be new and different rules to follow... as well as changes and new procedures...

so just saying all this speculation now is just Baloney.......LOL

The price isn't terrible, but they aren't counting on your ability to do math. There will be 60 still.

They dropped their passenger count by 15 people and only increased cost by $25.

They carried 45 people offshore at $175 = $7,875

dropped to

30 at $200 = $6,000

They are not even covering what they would make on a normal trip but want to get out and know we want to go out as well.

I see the prices going up if it stays limited load and I 100% will pay the extra money to fish especially with a lighter load.

People will pay thousands for destination fishing adventures but complain about $200 to fish Bluefin, Yellowfin, Yellowtail in our backyard!

Mark my words if they stay at that load price will increase.

The Aloha Spirit in Channel Islands is cutting load to 15 from 22 and charging $200.00. Basically your paying the rate to charter the boat and enjoying the numbers of a charter. I believe that Shawn will reduce the price when the government lets him carry 22 people again.
Your wrong
Aloha Spirit is 160$ + a 4% harbor fee works out to be 167$ open party for 15
Actually taking a hit of 100$ less over all
I charter the boat and rate now is 100$ less
than what I was quoted before this Rona Virus BS hit
Also there’s a reason the boat is booked solid well into July right now

The 3/4 day San Diego,
Is booked pretty much the next 2 weeks,
So raising the price is not really keeping,
People from going, supply and
Demand.

Aloha Spirit is booked solid during the summer
year after year
This Captain runs one of the best Operations on the Gold Coast and that’s the reason boat is booked solid
If you want to see for yourself I can give you a spot on my 7/3/20 charter
I’ll just bump off 1 of the non payers lol

I stand corrected, I was thinking of the San Diego day boats. The Aloha Spirit is a great operation, I was out with them today, had a great time.
